CREPUSCULE X: A TWILIGHT PERFORMANCE IN POWDERHORN PARK
FEATURING COMMUNITY ARTISTS, RESIDENTS & YOUTH
Location: Powderhorn Park 3400 15th Avenue South, Minneapolis, Minnesota
Date/Time: Sunday October 12, 2003, Performance 5:00pm until dusk
Instrument-making workshops: Tuesday, October 7 & Wednesday, October 8th
Admission: Free and open to the general public
-
6pm. Playing workshop/Community Orchestra Rehearsal: Saturday, October 11 -12:30pm
Featuring: Powderhorn resident artist/arranger/craftsman Douglas Ewart & Community Orchestra Inventions 
Sponsored by: Powderhorn Park Neighborhood (ASSOCIATION'S ARTS) Committee, Minneapolis Park & Recreation Board,
Aarawak Productions, COMPAS/McKnight Community Program and community artists.

Powderhorn resident musician and every-form artist, Douglas Ewart, and Powderhorn Park Neighborhood Association
are gearing up for the tenth annual production of Crepuscule X (pronounced cre'pus sckule) in Powderhorn Park.
Held on the second Sunday, the 12th of October 2003, this is the tenth anniversary of Powderhorn Park's fall celebration
of community, creativity, and the harvest of one's spirit. Community artists, both professional and amateur, cultural activists,
youth from local families and schools, and community residents gather at 5:00pm to begin a procession around Powderhorn's
Park and lake. Each group or "pod" of performers then spread out to designated locations within the park, performing within
their pod and moving around to "interact" with others. Audience members are encouraged to move around the park to
experience the music, dance or martial arts or spoken words being performed by each pod during the two-hour performance.
The final coda of Crepuscule takes place at twilight when all pods come together to perform as a Community Orchestra,
directed by "conductor, block party mix-master of time and space" Philadelphia Inquirer, June 9, 1997) Douglas Ewart.

Ewart, a past president of Chicago's AACCM, in an internationally renowned musician and educator who has been fashioning
his own instruments since he was a very young artist. While initially motivated by economics, he has since heightened his craft
to the level of fine art. Exhibiting and playing work locally at Intermedia Arts as well at as the Art Institute of Chicago, Museum
of Contemporary Art and other museums around the world. Douglas Ewart and his partner Janis Lane Ewart have developed
Crepuscule at Powderhorn is the oldest of these community gatherings but not the only one. It is linked to Crepuscule in Chicago
- produced by Ewart, Chicago Park District and the Jazz Institute of Chicago for four years - and to Crepuscule in Philadelphia
(1997 and 1999).

Crepuscule is a Latin word meaning "active at twilight or dusk" and in this case, signifies the highly decorated and unusual looking
percussion instruments Ewart constructs out materials such as crutches, oars, or skis that are no longer suitable for their original use.
Crepuscule always showcases Ewart's "crepuscular sticks" and those made by residents registered for Ewart's instrument making
workshops. This year's workshops will take place at Powderhorn Park the week before the Sunday Night Performance. Tuesday
- claves, Wednesday - horns. Saturday afternoon Ewart will hold a Playing workshop/Public Rehearsal for the Community Orchestra.

Joining Ewart in the visioning and development of Crepuscule over the years have been a host of resident professional musicians,
community activists and cultural workers, Performers and community residents wishing to participate in Crepuscule X workshops
or pods should contact Powderhorn Park's .....Family & Youth Organizer Akhmiri Sekhr-Ra immediately at 612-722-4817. Those
who are interested in participating in the performance are encouraged to bring musical instruments, paper and paint, puppets,
writings, or any other tools for creative expression.
